With England winning the match, the chances of Pakistan qualifying for the semi-finals have drastically slimmed down and we know you’re trying to do the math like:

Pakistan will have to beat Bangladesh today with a margin of over 450 runs to qualify…
So this is what Pakistan need to do to qualify for the semi-finals:
If Pakistan make 350, they need to bowl Bangladesh out for 38
If Pakistan score 400, they need to bowl Bangladesh out for 84
If Bangladesh bat first, there is no chance of Pakistan qualifying#CWC19 #PAKvBAN

In a press conference yesterday, Sarfaraz promised the nation to give their best performance and maybe even score 500 runs:

And people were feeling all sorts of ways:
Never ever criticise someone who believe in himself. Beshak mojzay dekhanay wali zaat us pak rub ki hai. Wo jisay chahay izzat day jisay chahay zilat day.
InshaAllah pakistan will qualify for the semifinal ❤ #PAKvBAN pic.twitter.com/PH26PoUTGb

Confidence ho toh aisa, go teammm!
If I was the captain, I would make sure boys make 500, if England can score 480, why not Pakistan? I feel @TheRealPCB is going to Play one of the finest cricket against @BCBtigers Today! History will be made Today! I am quite confident! #BleedGreen #PAKvBAN #PakistanCricket

People have also beenvurging others to cheer for their team no matter what:
I really hope every Pakistan fan who goes to the ground on Friday screams and cheers their heart out, back our boys to give one last great performance and just really enjoy the cricket! Let's show the world what the spirit of cricket is! #PakvBan #CWC19

If Pakistan qualifies to semis, I'll ace all courses in next semester. #PAKvBAN

People had innovative ideas:
The only way for Pakistan to reach semi final is first score 400, next plant 15kg heroine & have Bangladeshi players arrested😐#PAKvBAN

Hmmm, sounds do-able:
— Arslan Naseer – CBA (@ComicsByArslan) July 3, 2019
Agreed, no harm in exploring options for the future:
We most probably won't do it, but I would really go for it tomorrow, show proper intent, go out on a high if nothing else
Of that means bringing Asif in and opening with him and Fakhar, then go for it
If nothing else we can explore some options for the future#PAKvBAN

But while there was tons of support for the team, people were also bummed about it:
Sarfaraz: we will try to score 500
